I use GPX Tunami power cords. They have C004/P004 connectors. I do not know what the "Special Edition" versions of the C004 and P004 connectors entail, except they are grey and mine are red.

Aldavis - I have a "red one"... LOL
This is a pretty stiff cable - not like a ultra thick BMI but it still has some mind of its own. Definitely falls in the category of cables that will move a light component around. And its certainly not going to make a nice 90 degree bend a few inches from the receptacle.
All that said its a nice sounding cable for the money and the red plug shields (opaque not translucent) are definitely kinda festive.
Rudolph would like them
Pardon my ignorance...but isn't the tunami already triple shielded?
What was the purpose of the black cloth sheath over the top of the cable?Aesthetic purposes?
I'm sure you had a good reason,and if so where did you get
I am looking at making the same product for my system as well.
Thanx in advance for your reply,and Happy Holidays!
I am using two GPXs and am very satisfied with the results. The first runs from an R-1 outlet to an Acoustic Revive distribution block and the second continues to my integrated. What little line noise I had is gone and both ends of the spectrum really opened up. Taste tests showed that installing the first GPX, before the distribution block, made the most dramatic difference in the system. The GPX's drawback, as Ckorody mentioned, is that you need a lot of real estate to maneuver the cord behind equipment, so I'm considering trying Oyaide's PA-23ZX for my CDP. As much as I like those bright red plugs, maybe this cable is more in line with the real world power requirements of a CDP (or ten CDPs!). Has anyone tried one?
Yes.. purely aesthetics.. I got it at Take Five Audio in Canada.. While Christ VH sent some techflkex free with the plugs and cable i bought from VH Audio I wanted the softer Nylon Material I found at take Five. It was difficult to work onto the cable till i tried some powder on the cable and got it to slide without streching.. I haven't used heat scrink on the ends..not sure weather I'll eventually do it but I don't move this cord often so I will probably leave it as is.
I own two GPX-R (white plugs; for power distributor and integrated amp) and I am waiting for a third one for my digital source (instead of the GPX, red plugs).
GPX is a very dynamic cable with a strong mid-bass but it hides some microdetails in the higher frequencies, resulting a "dark", "warm" sound.
Recommended for systems weak in the bass and/or too bright/harsh on the top.
GPX-R shows even better dynamics, great bass strenght and definition, real neutrality with very good details, focus and soundstage, an almost universal cable, recommended for all systems.
